(es) wrote: FUCKIN' AWESOME documentary!! If you're not Australian, you might have trouble understanding the accent, as the Maroubra/Sydney accent is really really heavy. Still, worth watching and a must-see for surf fans. Some really great surfing footage and a good look at the history of the Bra Boys. Made me miss home...

(br) wrote: Anne Bancroft & Anthony Hopkins are brilliant as expected. Lovely story told through the power of personal letter-writing. There is no reference in the film, but discovered via TCM that this was a true story which made it exceptionally powerful. A must see.
(au) wrote: Really the only ties this film has to the previous two is George Kennedy, who only appears in it for a short time. Bringing back Dean Martin, Burt Lancaster or even Charlton Heston didn't even figure into the production meetings? Anyway it's a watch partially once on TV worthy film.
(de) wrote: How much more lovely this film is than I had any expectation of! One might suspect that a war thriller such as this one was only forced to have songs in it because of Julie Andrews's presence, rendering it a patchy musical thriller. What a misgiving that is; it's not a musical in any sense, doesn't try to be, and as far as thriller goes it clearly does not aspire to be one saturated with mystery either.It really is a romance set in the time of war, with romance first and war as the circumstance. It is not the sweetest love story ever told, but it is crisply told. Granted, the writing is not always of the highest quality, but it fairly consistently is. It quite clearly is intent on not being a war suspense story, but it is not completely void of intrigue, and whatever there is certainly left me wondering, neither alternative glaringly patently the truth. In fact the film never (or did I miss it?) reveals what Operation Crepe Suzette is at all, and how was Major Larrabee passing any vital military information through Lili to the German when everything we see him telling Lili is verified as lies in the film?If you want masculine suspense thriller then "Darling Lili" is not the place to look for it. It's the tangle with wartime espionage that the romance between Lili and Larrabee gets into that is the heart of this film. I regret that I find Julie Andrews too radiant a match for Rock Hudson, and although Dame Julie is completely natural as a lover Hudson seems wooden - neither convincingly sophisticated nor subtle. Once again Dame Julie Andrews really does literally carry the film. I think she was a little too old by this time for the strip-tease scene - but if you hadn't done it before it'd be better not to leave it until too late no?The music instrumental or vocal is, simply put, unbelievably gorgeous. Some authentic WWI songs are featured, adding authentic touches of historical atmosphere to the film. The new songs written for the film feel strangely tame when one identifies Dame Julie with supple and effortless vocal acrobatic, but nonetheless sparkle. All musical numbers, if you can call them that at all, except one, as in "Star!", appear in the context of performance. Only the film's main theme song, "Whistling Away the Dark", which becomes Lili's theme music (much more so than the more superficial eponymous theme "Darling Lili"), really has direct pertinence to the main story. For musical haters the presence of songs should not matter; neither are songs used to tell the story nor are they draggingly long. They are not staged in the grand manner of musicals, the uncluttered instrumentation plenteously spacious to showcase Dame Julie's performance and the choreography never gets larger-than-life. They add to the atmosphere of the film and Dame Julie performs as well as at any other time.Visually the film serves up some very beautiful pictures. The set is consistently beautiful. The same costume designer as for Dame Julie's wardrobe in "Star!" worked for this film, and the period costumes are just as dazzling and nostalgic, only more subdued. Their colours certainly are employed to the best result in the chromatic dynamic of the film's visual. The three most beautiful - very different - sequences (well actually four) that come to mind are the music hall performances of "Whistling Away the Dark" at the beginning and the end of the film, Lili's waking up to a house of red roses and when Lili and Larrabee join a school of children walking hands in hands in crocodiles singing a patriotic-sounding French songs in the French countryside. On the whole the air fight scenes are the most dire, the action generally feeling dragged and the scenery looking uncannily British for battles that are supposed to be taking high above the fields of Flanders.I felt the film could do very well without its Pink-Panther-esque comic, especially of the two French Army Intellingence officers, which, however slight, leaves the film lacking in the grit that would make it so much better. However, noone should allow that to dissuade him from this neat little weaving of a war romance.

It was actually tough to watch because it looked so cheap. That cheap look, along with the off-putting performance (if you want to call it that) from leading-man Paul LeMat were enough to make me reach for the remote to press the "Eject" button. But just about the time that I was about to give up, there's a tremendous old school practical effect where a man rips off his face to reveal a classic grey alien. Then, the always appealingly cute Nancy Allen steps in to become a main character and makes me mostly forget that Paul LeMat is around. I can hardly recall the story but it was quirky and ended up being weird enough to make me leave the Eject button alone. Oh, and after what seemed to me to be an exceedingly dark start and middle of the movie, the ending was off-the-wall happy. I remember shaking my head trying to understand what I just watched, which always makes me feel obligated to rate a movie as "Good".
